It will no longer connect to network. Keeps saying "searching for network". Had excellent reception before. Everything else on it works. I tried the sim card on a friends phone: it works fine. Off warranty. What broke inside and what can I do about it? Could there be something inside I can easily solder to fix it?

You mention you have tried a digi box and it made no difference. If on the same aerial point, it will be the aerial. Check the cable as there may be a "ghost" on the digital frequency causing errors and picture freezing.
OK try this go to that PC, go START>>RUN>>service.msc (enter) Now when services window comes up, scroll down to DHCP, set to OFF & Disable, reboot, now try again. Sometimes just a Turn it ALL OFF, and ON again and most often it will sort itself out., IF it was working OK prior. You could always run the "Connect to internet Wizard" again, and do that. Also go into router and ensure that DHCP, is set to ON in the Router. Sometimes, a simple re-setup will get it all working again too.
if this does not work, goto start, control panel, view classic settings, click network, you should see you network connect as an icon here, right click the mouse over the icon, select repair. the computer will do a variety of things.
sometimes hotels have a login page that you have to log in through as a guest with your room number to get them working. or, the router might be set to MAC filtering, in which case you need to give the admin you MAC address so you can get on the network.
double check that you are actually getting on the right network. sometimes people set up dummy networks to capture all your data.
It sounds like you may have a poor 3G reception in your area. Even though other O2 phones are working better they may be running on the 2G masts in your area.
Try in setting/network menu turning off 3G reception, that way the device will only look for 2G masts. Your handset will give priority to 3G masts where available and sometimes will hold onto the weakest signal making poor call quality, and or dropping connection.
Advantages to using 2G only = better standby and talk time / better reception where 3G is poor.
Disadvantages = Slower web browsing / no video calls.
WEP / WPA will only apply if you are connecting using WI FI and have nothing to do with your mobile network connection.
Hope that helps?
